RPi - Getting Started
Dear all,
I've a very basic question! I’m new to the world of Raspberry Pi and intend to buy a DAC that comes fitted with a RPi 4 module. I run MinimServer on a Synology NAS and use a BCD REFStream as the renderer. If I want to use the RPi 4 as the renderer instead of the REFStream, what do I need to do? Do I instal MinimServer, Java, etc… on the RPi, or do I continue to run MinimServer on the NAS? Etc...
Thanks and best wishes,
Paul

You can continue to run Minimserver on you nas, install RoPieee XL on your rpi, enable UPNP/DLNA service on RoPieee XL and use a control point of your choice on a smartphone/tablet
Available control point are Bubble, Linn Kazoo, Linn app, MConnect, Lumïn app …. etc. depending on your mobile device OS (Android or Apple)

Alternatively you could install upmpdcli on your RPi. This is a software UPnP renderer that runs on a vareiety of Linux systems. For details of how to download and install it on your RPi, see this page.

Whichever renderer software you choose, it is a good idea to continue running MinimServer on the Synology NAS. Running the server and renderer on separate machines often improves sound quality.
